Did you ever do something that you wished others hadn`t seen?
I`ll admit I do such things quite frequently, generally though I`m lucky enough not to have witnesses that will not let me live it down. Seeing as how this episode of Feralism was darn funny, and since everyone that I know will hear about it later, I figured I may as well just tell the tale now to ensure the facts are straight.
Yesterday was another in a line of pretty busy days. Mister and I and Miss Yodeling piled into the car to buy some groceries and make some other stops. Mister wanted to stop at our local feed-store to see if chick order forms were in yet (They weren`t) since he wants to purchase some broad-breasted turkey poults. I also had a stop or two to make before we hit the Weis.
Now I`m one of them folks that likes to chat when I stop into one of our small-town stores and I am also a writer, which basically means I like to talk a lot and my mind wanders. After having a nice chat with the clerk about it being her birthday and how she was still nursing a cold, I grabbed up my little purchase and headed out the door. My mind was somewhere else I admit it. More than likely in some far off place where pixies or fairies roam or mayhap even plotting out some future storyline or spicy romantic encounters for my characters-I do shop and plot. I also drive and plot, sleep and plot and eat and plot.
I walked up to our car, lost in the random meanderings of my fictional world and tugged on the car handle, fully intending to hand my little bag to Miss Yodeling. It was then, when the back door refused to open that reality shoved that toasty scene with a tall vampire and a winsome heroine in a stone bathtub away rudely. It actually took me a second as I wondered why my kid locked the door to understand that the car door I was yanking on so violently wasn`t our car door at all.
By this time I could hear my husband and child in the gold car next to this strangers gold car laughing hysterically. The tears were rolling as I stepped with as much regality as I could from this unknown person’s car to ours. Mister, after he gathered himself enough to be able to speak, said he had thought to warn me not to go to the gold car next to us, but he assumed I would be offended that he would question my higher brain functions in such a manner.
By this time I was laughing as hard as they were at my own huge slip in brain power. Darn those sexy vampires in steaming water anyways! Oh well, at least the family got a belly-laugh out of my distraction as did I. And to the stranger with the gold car I do apologize but wish to tell you that your locks work really well!
So what have you all been up to lately? Hopefully it wasn’t as embarrassing as what I`ve been doing!
Also a big yodel of welcome to Ain`t for City Gals!
